Propagating star aloe babies

chaparralgirl(Sonoran Desert (CA))July 13, 2014

Hi, all! My mom's got a star aloe that's produced some babies, and she wants to remove them so she can plant them; but neither she nor I know how to do this safely. Can they be cut bluntly like agave pups? Or do they need their own roots to survive?

I've included a photo.

'Star Aloe'... not familiar with that common name... looks like Aloe 'nobilis' or close relative to me. Those are part of the same plant (not really babies), but once larger, should be able to be removed and rooted. Any chance at shots of the main plant to see what a 'Star Aloe' is?

Unfortunately at very end of flowering, so can't tell much from flowers.. could be Aloe noblilis or Aloe mitriformis (less likely)... have very different flowers... .though both red.
